Depending on the woman, flirting may be revealed in several different ways. You may notice the long, seductive stares; the extra long smiles; and the exaggerated laughter. There are also episodes of excessive conversation that go way beyond a simple 2-minute chat.
The art of flirting for women can show up in several ways, so let's explore some of them.
Women are much more subtle about flirting than men, so the physical clues aren't always obvious. Guys are not accustomed to getting a lot of attention from women, and certainly do not get approached often. So recognizing a flirtatous move can sometimes be a bit tricky.
Here are some signs to help you determine that she is flirting with you:
The flirting that women do is mostly harmless. If she is seeking more than just a friendly banter of conversation, she will surely let you know. Men have a tendency to mistake friendly behavior for flirting or sexual overtones. Men should understand and be aware of the natural male tendency to view most interaction from a woman as something suggestive.
For many men, the goal is to convert all of that flirting into dates. Those intial gazes are fine, but what happens when we do it with a purpose?
If the conversation is good and the attraction is strong, a simple suggestion for future conversations will suffice. Don't make the mistake of "overflirting", or making early suggestions for intimacy.
Be humorous and have fun doing it. Humor is important and helps break up tension since both men and women can sometimes experience nervousness while flirting for dates.
Effective communication, even if it's through flirting, is always the key to the next step.
